This Action Pump 7600-FDA food grade, electric, centrifugal drum pump is made with 316 stainless steel, for corrosion resistance, delivers 32 gallons per minute (gpm), and is suitable for transferring low-viscosity food products, pharmaceutical ingredients, and personal care solutions. Its internal components are made of PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) for resistance to chemicals, moisture, and high temperatures, and buna-n for resistance to oils, alcohol, acids, and aliphatic hydrocarbons. It has a variable speed, 110VAC electric motor and ships fully assembled with 2" National Pipe Taper (NPT) threaded bung adapter. This centrifugal drum pump is suitable for use with 15, 30, or 55 gallon drums in the transfer of sauces, dairy products, pharmaceuticals, wine and beer, juices, cosmetic fragrances, and other applications.

Pumps use mechanical action to move liquids, gases, or slurries (solids suspended in a liquid or gas). The mechanical action is categorized as either positive displacement (PD) or kinetic. PD pumps capture and release discrete amounts of flow into a chamber and then force it out. Some examples of PD pumps are fuel and oil pumps in cars, pumps in hydraulic systems, and bicycle pumps. Kinetic pumps move liquids, gases, or slurries by transferring energy from the pump's movement to the flow. They use an impeller to draw the flow in, add energy to the flow, and move it through a volute (a spiral funnel through which the flow moves), and into the system. Some examples of kinetic pumps include centrifugal (the most common pump in industrial applications), in-line pumps, sump pumps, and suction pumps. Energy sources for all types of pumps include wind power, manual operation, electricity, and gasoline or diesel fuel.
Action Pump manufactures drum and pail pumps and grease, oil, and lubrication products. The company, founded in 1981, is headquartered in Cary, IL.
